Great Basin Heritage Area Partnership to hold quarterly meeting

The Board of Directors of the Great Basin Heritage Area Partnership (GBHAP) will hold its quarterly meeting on Friday, March 16 at 10:00 PST/11:00 MST. The meeting will be held at the Holden Town Hall, 185 South Main Street in Holden and is open to the public.

The GBHAP supports grassroots projects that promote, conserve, and interpret the unique natural and cultural heritage of the Great Basin National Heritage Area.

Since 2012, GBHAP has awarded more than $700,000 for local projects including the restoration of an historic walking trail to the Holden Cemetery, local history collection at the Ely Renaissance Village, strategic planning efforts by the White Pine County Museum, the Old Capitol Storytelling Festival, and roof replacement for the American Legion Hall in Fillmore.

The Great Basin National Heritage Area was designated by Congress in 2006 and encompasses Millard County, Utah; White Pine County, Nevada; and the Duckwater Shoshone Reservation. This designation makes the region eligible for federal funds; it does NOT, however, permit ownership, management, or regulation of any land or property within the heritage area.
